San Francisco’s Presidio Trust isn’t giving up. After rejecting three shortlisted schemes earlier this year that envisioned a “cultural institution of distinction” for the underdeveloped Crissy Field, the Trust has now invited five new teams to envision “kid-friendly” plans for a 13 acre portion of the site. 

The five teams, which include James Corner Field Operations, Olson Kundig Architects and Snøhetta, are expected to present their ideas publicly in just three months. A winner will not be selected, though each team will receive $25,000 for their efforts. However, the Trust will be inclined to work with one of the teams should their concepts “dazzle” the audience.  

A complete list of the five teams and more project information, after the break...

New York’s James Corner Field Operations will be competing against Olson Kundig Architects with Olin, Snøhetta with Walter Hood, West 8 with Jensen Architects, and CMG Landscape Architecture

Each winner will provide concepts for a 10-acre "Tunnel Top Parklands” that will cover the Presidio Parkway’s future traffic tunnel, a youth campus surrounded by a family-oriented landscape, and a new visitors center near the Main Post’s parade ground. 

"These five approaches will become the raw material for conversations with the public about what the site wants to be," said Michael Boland, chief of planning for the Trust. "It has to work well, be compelling and be beautiful."
